Honey-Mustard Turkey Meatballs Recipe

Publisher Photo
I serve this appetizer often during the holidays. It's nice to have a turkey meatball that doesn't taste like you should have used beef. These tangy meatballs can be prepared ahead and frozen, so even drop-in guests can be treated to a hot snack. -Bonnie Durkin, Nescopeck, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 11, 2010

"I made this recipe the year that I saw it in TOH magazine. My family loved it! I made it exactly according to the recipe, and then...I lost my magazine! I'm SO glad to have this delicious recipe in my hands again. It's a great main dish, served with rice, or an equally delicious appetizer."
